Lenovo will be launching its latest smartphone, the S5 Pro, on October 18 at an event in Beijing, China. The smartphone is a bumped-up version of the Lenovo S5 that was launched in March this year, and is expected to sport a total of four cameras: a dual-camera setup each at the front and rear. The phone is targeted at selfie-lovers, and will promise better selfies and portrait shots as a result of its dual-camera setup at the front.
The phone will also likely sport mid-range specifications, and could come with a Qualcomm 600-series chipset such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 or 660. There could also be a notched screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio, given that this is the in-fashion design aspect on even mid-range smartphones these days. The information on the October 18 launch was shared in the form of a Weibo post by the company’s vice president Chang Cheng.
Some reports suggest that the phone could sport a notch-less display, with a manual slider at the back which holds the front dual-camera setup. There have also been hints of the phone featuring a near-100 percent screen-to-body ratio, but as was the case with the Lenovo Z5, the company’s claims and rumors need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

The device also sports a 5.7-inch full-HD+ 18:9 aspect ratio screen, with no display notch.
